This Zippered Lamp Fabulously Bridges Fashion and Fixture Design

There's something so quirky about the design of this hoodie light, yet its aesthetic impression is one of soft sophistication. The table lamp comprises a wooden stump embedded with LED lights and a broad collar of felt material to give it a unique sculptural form.

The Désormeaux/Carrette Studio was inspired by the fashion industry, and it quite successfully demonstrates the great crossover between clothing design and product design.

The soft fabric is delicately cut into a rounded form and left to flare out from a narrow neckline around the timber base. In a color that matches the textile, a zipper is stitched in, enabling you to leave the illuminator open for dispersed radiance, or to fasten the Dita hoodie light up for directional upwards rays.
